Holy crap, Draygon. That IS going to drop some people. I already planned to go and get some new glasses for this brew due to the %. I only have 16oz flip top bottles and I think it will be in everyone's interest to have a smaller glass of thisn'.

So OG was 1.080 and bubbling away, dropped a few cloves in with the cinnamon, used 1 clove for each gallon and a few French roast coffee beans to try and give hints.
It smells grate coming out of the air lock and a nice amber color in the fermenter, a couple more days to the secondary cant wait to see the color in the glass carboy!

Did a taste reminded me of an IPA, but it still has time with the oak and rum

lol, all that means is you need to make more. I racked onto the oak chips this past Friday and washed the yeast so I could make more of this later in the year. SG was 1.014 down from 1.076 so I'm doing OK so far I think.

I am surprised by the airlock activity....well, lack thereof anyway. It's completely still - sorta eerie. Like, not even up at all. That normal?

What can I use as a substitute for the Weyermann CaraAroma? My local homebrew shop does not stock this. Thanks!

You could sub for Belgian Special B but not sure what the conversion would be.
